Sort yourself out before dating a French woman. I am not joking here. First of all, there is nothing worse than a guy who has unresolved issues. Dating rules are highly influenced by the culture and habits of a country and its people. I'm a French native with Caribbean origins living in New. k. It was three years ago that I went on my first date with a French girl. She was from Brittany and thus had one of those terribly sexy accents.
